and afghanistan to the relatives of the 2005 london transit bombings as well as the royal family. the editor has been arrested. david cameron has opened a public inquiry. for the first time in over a month, the yemen president spoke out. he's gone over eight operations. his complexion was darker, hands and arms covered with bandages. facial hair was gone. he made no mention of when he would return to yemen and welcomes power sharing as long as it is within the country's constitutional frame work. diplomats said there was a slim chance he would return. tell me what this means and your reaction to what you saw in terms of his appearance. >> it was bizarre. it's part of a larger power. look at yemen and egypt. what you see are prolonged stalemates and situation that is looked helpful. the middle east is in for a long, hot summer. a difficult winter and beyond. this is not going to be anything like a quick move to democracy and these countries. you can have large, ungoverned spaces where terrorists move in. it's a challenge for the united states. >> what is the largest threat to our national securit

to the war in afghanistan. he's given on taxes. he mised a huge opportunity in my opinion there. why can't the republicans just open their minds a little bit, give a little bit. go back on a commitment to make something happen. >> obama is wrong. >> he's not wrong. >> he had a $780 billion stimulus. the $700 billion tarp, three deficits for $1.5 trillion. we have the fete pumping in $600 billion. it hasn't worked. and so it hasn't -- if it hasn't worked, cohen calls this a cult. the cult won 63 seats. six months ago. what happened to his party. >> thankfully we didn't listen to republicans on the carr industry without the investment the american people made, we would have lost gm, chrysler, ford, and lost our ability on the global stage too. thank god we ignored the republicans when it came to saving the financial system without it. it was the right thing to do for them to pay them back. but what i want to know, ray torically, is where was the team party when bush ran the debt up. they were absent. this isn't as much political as it is substance. i don't doubt they have considerable repu

for every truth that we have in afghanistan. something people are recognizing, that the defense has got to be a part of this. and secretary gates basically has played a shell game. you're giving him too much credit. he said let's spend more on the state department, but he didn't want to take any from defense. where did he think he was going to get it? he never did, he, for example, in 2008, he presented what he thought would be his last budget to congress, the 2009 budget on the bush administration. he said by 2012, we'll need about $543 billion in the base budget. you know what he asked for this year? $553 billion, that's after he pretended to make all these cuts. >> what kind of leadership do you think is needed and could be expected in order to get this done. republicans are touting their issues of fiscal issues, and there's a question whether the fiscal gains could be culled from the defense issue. and especially in the last decade. >> i think you're seeing a return to the tradition republicans now. let's not forget eisenhower cut defense spending by 60% in his time in office, nixon
